3 New Launches for Job Seekers

To mark the launch of Dan Schawbel's terrific Me 2.0 book about personal branding, it's a good time to also mention some of the other job search projects that JobMob contributors have created for you recently.

Dan Schawbel's Me 2.0 is now available

Me 2.0 coverI introduced Dan to you in the past when he invited me to join his terrific Personal Branding Blog.

As the “leading personal branding expert for Gen-Y,” Dan's Me 2.0 is “the first book about personal branding written for the millennial generation by a millennial,” offering “practical and proven advice about personal branding.”

Some highlights of the book according to the official site:

  • Tips on using social media tools for personal empowerment, confidence building, and professional networking in order to attract jobs directly to you, without applying!

I posted on this book yesterday and it looks fabulous. I work a great deal with the technology end of job seeking as I informally get into counseling with clients when we are working with outsourcing. I think that this book will offer a clearer picture into the social media platforms and how to best leverage them for job search success.

Also, thanks for the post on username checking tools. I do have a question – do you find that having the same username helps in creating a more recognizable brand? Does having multiple cause issues or water down your branding efforts? Please let me know.

Jason- good questions.

Building a brand – personal or corporate – is all about (positive) reinforcement. The more uniform your brand is – same usernames everywhere, same avatar everywhere – the more it will be reinforced. Easier to manage too, with just one username to remember.

If I understand what you meant by “cause issues” then yes, you want to make sure that wherever you reuse a username it’s done in a way that harmonizes with your brand. Otherwise, that’s a good place to use a different username.
